Reinforcement vs. Reminders

Reinforcement is More than Reminding

Reminder Services vs. Mindmarker Reinforcement

If your training has been integrated into one of the major learning management system (LMS) providers, you probably have access to some type of reminder service as part of your package.  So how is this different than training reinforcement and what is the main difference between reminders and reinforcement?

How Does a Reminder Service Work?

Reminder services are typically viewed as an additional tool used to help remind participants of what they learned during training. Reminder services use many different methods like:

  • Email reminders
  • Text messages
  • LMS-based reminders
  • eLearning software

Why Keeping Participants Engaged is Difficult

Reminder messages usually contain or link to small snippets of training materials that are simply cut up into small messages and placed along a static timeline or reoccuring schedule. 

Without customized courses, a variety of training modules, specific learning objectives and an adaptive program timeline, the participant stuggles to remain engaged or interested.

What is Training Reinforcement?

New knowledge and skills start to fade as soon as the participant walks out the door. For training to have the most impact, it has to be reinforced. Training reinforcement is much more than remembering training content.
